Recently we booked the two day Progression Course with the Snowcountry instructors. For us this was an excellent experience. We improved our skiing, saw a variety of different ski resorts within the Yuzawa area and experienced the welcoming Japanese culture, with our instructor, Patrick.

While we are only intermediate skiers, Patrick was patient, friendly and 'wise' with his advice and helped us move forward as skiers. In particular, having Patrick's expertise ensured we visited the best ski runs suitable for the conditions of each day. This would have been much more difficult without Patrick's guidance, given we experienced a full range of conditions including sun, rain, wind and a big dump of powder 😀

Probably the best part of all for us was the extra attention that Patrick provided, picking us up, taking us to the best restaurants and helping us through the language barrier.

It is not just what he did but how he went about doing it. Patrick is a patient and personable instructor/guide who made the whole experience comfortable, fun and the opportunity to advance our skiing.

Would we recommend this experience to our friends and family? Absolutely.

Thank you Patrick, thank you Snowcountry and thank you Powderhounds.

This package is great value. Having a guide and instructor the whole day really helped in improving our techniques . Patrick was patient and relaxed. He showed us runs which suited our ability and was very accommodating in what we wanted to do. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a 2 day ski experience. With its quick access from Tokyo, Yuzawa has loads to offer for those looking to incorporate a short side ski trip into their holiday plans.
